Pat Dubach is an experienced and tested senior executive, who at the age of 50 was in charge of downsizing the organization where he was employed. One night sitting at his computer, working through the new organization chart, Pat no longer saw where he fit. After six months of searching and many aptitude tests, the results showed that Pat loved building businesses and also social work. Pat had a “Jerry Maguire” moment. He saw a need and capitalized on an opportunity; bring hope to blighted downtown communities, fueled by innovative for profit business. That idea is the genesis of the Re-Development Group, and its mission. Pat and Judy, his wife of 48 years, moved to an area of downtown Indianapolis, determined to make an impact and have never looked back.
Pat founded The Re-Development Group (RDG) in 1998, and is the firm's Chief Executive Officer. Since forming RDG he has used areas of expertise, gained in “Corporate America”, to establish a sound business strategy that renews downtown communities and produces a high quality product. RDG has since become one of the premier home builders in Indianapolis.
As a graduate of Marion College (Indiana Wesleyan) with a BS Degree in Business Administration, and International Business College with an Associate’s Degree in Professional Accounting, Pat was aptly prepared for the numerous leadership positions at Avesta Sheffield NAD Inc., based in Schaumburg, Illinois. He helped Avesta Sheffield generate $500 Million Dollars in sales per year, and employed 710 people. Pat held the following positions: Senior Vice President (1996-1998), Executive Vice President of Finance & Information Systems (1988-1992), and Group Controller (1981-1988). Expertise and experience are diverse: Business Development, International Experience, Mergers & Acquisitions, Human Resources, Organizational Analysis / Development, Accounting & Finance. His past experience has made him uniquely suited for trailblazing the urban development movement in Indianapolis.
Pat's interest and passion converge around community redevelopment downtown Indianapolis, where he works and lives. While Pat is not outwardly involved in the day to day operations of RDG, he is always working "On The Business" to improve internal processes and ensure the team is properly equipped with sound direction. Retirement was never a part of Pat's long term plan; he is doing what he loves and is as energized as ever!
